DCM Challenge - 3 Dai's

This weeks Daring Card Makers came from Lythan:

As a reward for all the brain power that went into the Little Extra this week, this is a simple one. From simple LythanWith a cryptic clue.Which, as I discovered to my embarrassment, when I laid it on the team, is only really possible to understand if you live in the UK. And even better, are Welsh.So... a trio of Welsh Barbers means that on your card you need to have 3 die cuts!( Dai is a common Welsh nickname for David and as there are a lot of Dai's around they are known by their jobs so a Welsh barber would be known as Dai Cuts. I'll get my coat.)


Here are a couple of cards I came up with.
This is for my Dad's birthday this week. The 3 dies are Sizzix Circles (red die), Cuttlebug Red Tag Sale letters and Cuttlebug Concentric Stars. The papers are digi freebies from the fabulous Kirsty Wiseman. The letters were cut from mountboard, painted with acrylic and then sanded.

Now for my second effort:


Dies: Cuttlebug Red Tag Sale (again) also cut from mountboard, coloured with ink and then covered with glossy accents; Cuttlebug flower and quickutz photo anchors. Papers are Basic Grey.

Thanks for looking, the photos are a bit pants as:
1) It's been dark and grey all day here so light is pants
2) I've got a new camera which I am wrestling with :)

Off now to wrestle with the camera a bit more!
